THUNDER BAY, ON --- May 20, 2015 --- Chris Lamont is an easygoing University student and is currently wrapping up his time as a student in Thunder Bay. As a music student he came to the right place to study bass, because Thunder Bay Symphony’s Martin Blanchet is also the instructor for bass at the university.
If you know Martin at all it only takes a moment to realize how much he identifies himself as a bass player. He can and does play bass for all kinds of music in every genre where a bass might be needed. Over time he has developed an incredible technique and talent and love for playing the bass.
When you hear Chris Lamont play bass, I am sure Martin will be in the hall. Over the four years he has spent as a student of Martin Blanchet he has learned to love his instrument and to work hard to become a celebrated musician. While Chris has worked hard, it is also the University and its teachers who are doing a great job of turning out Canada’s future musicians, and Chris’s recital will prove that you can make your musical ambitions a reality by studying music here.
Chris is “Very excited to be attending The Orford Academy this summer for their double bass camp with Joel Quarrington! As well, I'm putting on a recital at Lakehead Unitarian fellowship Friday May 29 at 7 pm with Sean Kim on piano. Doors are by donation and all funds raised are going towards a new instrument so I can continue my studies and career on double bass! Looking forward to seeing some new and familiar faces and I greatly appreciate all the support I have received!”
Should you attend this recital, you will be amazed by what toe Double bass can do.. You will also see that he not only learned from his teacher how to play the bass, but also acquired the attitude and the discipline needed to make a career from the double bass.
